If you want a simple shrimp boil

It is a good value for the money when you are in the mood for a shrimp boil with potatoes and corn. They also have crawfish, the owners are friendly.

Best Crawfish in Texas if you ask me. They are a little pricey, but the taste is well worth it!!! Bring your own beer/wine or cocktails.

We went with to Plooky's based on good reviews from Urbanspoon. The shrimp was good, the gumbo was great, the boudin was mushy:(. They had a large group and seemed to be overwhelmed and never got several things we asked for. We are from Austin and not used to smoking allowed but moved to a table in the corner away... More

The husband and I decided to try what looks like a hole-in-the-wall restaurant from the outside. We were pleasantly surprised. 1 lb of shrimp, 4 corn on the cobs, 4 potatoes and sliced sausage dumped Cajun style onto the butcher paper laid over your table and a cup of gumbo for $27.95. Byob makes it even more cost effective. The... More

We have been known to get up early on a Sunday morning and fly or drive to New Orleans during crawfish season. So we obviously like crawfish. Hot, spicy, tears in your eyes crawfish.We have been remarkably impressed with a few local offerings of this delectable dish. Unfortunately for Plookey's, they are NOT even close to good. We ate there... More

Hadn't been to Plookys in a very long time, decided to go with my wife & another couple. The place was filthy & smelled of smoke & butts. We all looked at each other & couldn't believe the place. This restaurant should be closed by the health dept. We walked around both top & lower areas, On the floor were... More

Noticed tokillamockingbird's review in which Plookys was given a 5* review on every aspect. Since this appeared to be a commentary on my prior post let me respond accordingly. First we are not tourists having been in canyon city going on 20 years, secondly wife and motherinlaw did become deathly ill on the gumbo which as I said before could... More

I love this place & it's obvious you tourists don't know great food! The bread is not made there. The gumbo wouldn't get you sick, if it did why would you keep going back? The shrimp is my favorite but you should order medium.
